After a little wrangling, the dishwasher got installed today. Seems to be running well and I tested it over the next several days.


I posted this six years ago on Facebook and with the upcoming election I thought it was worth a re-post everywhere.

Been thinking about life starting next Wednesday. No matter who wins I will continue:

  • ro say "Yes Ma'am" and "Yes Sir"
  • to cheerfully wish friends and strangers a "good morning"
  • to give up my seat on the subway to the elderly, injured, sick and pregnant
  • to hold the door open for people behind me
  • to be patient with customer service people
  • and to try to lighten to burden of folks around me

because I refuse to let our differences impact the important things. I want to live in a world we were love and respect are given to all. This election season has proven to me, on both sides hate is winning. Positivity has to start somewhere and love overpowers hate.


The good news: we had a new dishwasher delivered today/.

The bad news: the plumber bailed on the job so it's gonna be another day or so until it's installed.

Just passed a young lady (late teens or early 20s) wearing a police lady costume. I almost asked her if she was dressing as Amy Pond and decided it was no way I could do so without coming off as a "creepy old dude".

Price List

Prior to the pandemic, I'd head into Manhattan a couple of days a week for a client (I was a hybrid worker before hybrid working was cool). I'd buy a sandwich at the corner deli before heading into work for two reasons; it was cheaper than buying a sandwich in Manhattan, and I'd be less likely to pick up the McDonald's McDouble bundle to “save money”. 

The sandwich would run me $5.00. I was in the deli the other day, and the current price list was on the counter. The same sandwich would cost me $7.50 today. That's a 50% increase over three years. This economy is scary.
